Wearing of the Green on St. Patrick’s Day

March 17th is St. Patrick's Day - a celebration when everyone is Irish, regardless of their own heritage! After all, even St. Patrick himself wasn't Irish, meaning that this is a day we can all embrace. From the wearing of the green to the local parade, there are many ways we love to observe this holiday - and Mission Viejo Florist is ready with the uniquely beautiful green flowers you'll need to dress up your home or office for the occasion! Did You Know? Patrick was born in Great Britain, and his given name is Maewyn Succat. When just a young man, Maewyn was kidnapped by pirates and held captive in Ireland. Upon his release, he became a Catholic priest, changed his name, and acted as a missionary to the Emerald Isle. He was so beloved in his adopted home that when he died, they named the day in his honor.  Read More about Wearing of the Green on St. Patrick’s Day »

Spring Flowers Arrive in Southern California

Spring is a bit different in California. In fact, while other parts of the country are still shoveling out from under the last remnants of ice and snow, we are enjoying some pretty nice weather. And although the difference between the seasons may not be as dramatic here in Mission Viejo, we do have reason to anticipate the spring - simply having longer days is reason enough to smile. Just when you may think our town couldn't be any prettier, the spring flowers arrive! Read More about Spring Flowers Arrive in Southern California »

Floral Design Day in Mission Viejo

Floral Design Day is officially February 28th and is a day set aside to honor and celebrate all the talented artisans whose medium is flowers. Of course, at Mission Viejo Florist, every day is designated for floral designs - it is what we do best! If you are looking for flowers for any special occasion, or you simply want to send flowers "just because", make sure to give us a call first. Floral Design Day was originally established to honor Carl Rittner, the founder of the School of Floral Design in Boston.

Mardi Gras History

Mardi Gras is a beloved celebration in many communities across the country and around the world. Of course, in the United States, New Orleans is the most iconic of the festivities. Not willing to be limited to just one day of parties, the revelry actually occurs for months prior to Fat Tuesday. But what is Mardi Gras, and why do we celebrate it? The history of the holiday is an interesting combination of pagan hedonism and Christian faith, which has come down through thousands of years. Read More about Mardi Gras History »
